We are appointed by the client to take control of the pre-construction phase of any project involving more than one contractor under Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015
As principal designers we have an important role in influencing how risks to health and safety are managed throughout a project. Design decisions made during the pre-construction phase have a significant influence in ensuring the project is delivered in a way that secures the health and safety of everyone affected by the work.
Failing to comply with CDM 2015 means that your project could be putting workers and others at risk of harm, and that the finished structure may not achieve good standards and be value for money. In the event of any more serious breaches of health and safety legislation on your construction project could result in construction work being stopped by HSE or your local authority and additional work may be needed to put things right. In the most serious circumstances, you could be prosecuted.
